Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising mp3 album

Titanic Rising by Weyes Blood, released 05 April 2019 1. A Lot's Gonna Change 2. Andromeda 3. Everyday 4. Something to Believe 5. Titanic Rising 6. Movies 7. Mirror Forever 8. Wild Time 9. Picture Me Better 10. Nearer to Thee The phantom zone, the parallax, the upside down-there is a rich cultural history of exploring in-between places. Through her latest, Titanic Rising, Weyes Blood (. Natalie Mering) has, too, designed her own universe to soulfully navigate life’s mysteries.

Midway through the album, Titanic Rising moves into the murky realm of the subconscious through its instrumental title track, like a sunbeam finding its way to the ocean floor. On the subsequent Movies, Mering sounds as if she is singing from the album cover’s sunken bedroom, her voice wobbly and distended. The song’s title alludes to the hymn that the Titanic’s house band supposedly played as the ship sank. Here, as it was then, Weyes Blood can’t help but offer one last breath of hope as she gazes towards an uncertain future.

On ‘Titanic Rising’, her fourth release under the Weyes Blood moniker, the LA-based musician has drifted further away from the psych-folk and ’70s Laurel Canyon of her early years and towards soft rock. View All. ThrowBackGmac. 100. I've been pretty disgruntled the past couple of days. I was given an opportunity with this album journalists and critics dream of. I got to see Weyes Blood live on her first ever show for her new album. Strummers in Fresno, CA. 4/1/19) It was a bar show too so the intamacy in the room was on fire.

A strong contender for album of the year. Titanic Rising is remarkable for its breadth, effortlessly shifting from the 90-second ambient wash of the title track to Picture Me Better’s homespun take on the cosmic cowboyisms of Kacey Musgraves.

Weyes Blood's album 'Titanic Rising' also tackles climate change and the devastating toll it's taken on the earth. Kathryn Vetter Miller. When Natalie Mering was 12 years old, she stopped watching movies. The singer-songwriter, who performs under the name Weyes Blood (pronounced wise blood ), didn’t watch a single film for three years. I was like, ‘This is full of shit,' the 31-year-old admits. ‘This is just setting everybody up for disappointment. There’s no real value. It’s just something to be consumed, created by sexist pigs. This is your fourth album. How do you think you’ve grown as a songwriter? I’ve gotten a little bit stronger at painting pictures using more complex harmonies and lyrics. Before, my songs were a little folkier, and maybe a little bit more open for interpretation. And now I think the words are very literal, and the chord changes paint that picture of what the words are supposed to mean

Weyes Blood, Titanic Rising ★★★★★ If you want to know how hard it is to categorise Titanic Rising – the enthralling fourth album from Weyes Blood – look no further than the American musician’s own attempt to do so. It is, she says, The Kinks meet the Second World War, or Bob Seger meets Enya. 7/43 Ariana Grande – Thank U, Next. The album is packed with personal confessions for the fans – Arianators – to pick over. It lacks a centrepiece to match the arresting depth and space of Sweetener’s God Is A Woman, but Grande handles its shifting moods and cast of producers (including pop machines Max Martin and Tommy Brown) with engaging class and momentum.

The road that songwriter Natalie Mering and her shapeshifting project Weyes Blood walked was a long and twisting route, leading from weird experimental early days to the high-definition grandeur of fourth album Titanic Rising. Every step of the journey brought Mering's gifts for songcraft into sharper focus, with 2014's achingly beautiful The Innocents losing some of its hush with the soft rock lushness of 2016's Front Row Seat to Earth

Reviews about Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising (30):
EXIBUZYW
Very nice pressing. There are a few clicks, but mastering was very well done - vocals, drums and bass sound very beautiful on this release.Besides being beautiful aesthetically, it sounds good despite those cracks on silent passages. Won't bummer your listening experience because this album is musical perfection from beginning to end.
Memuro
Thanks VMP for messing it up. I'm waiting for this album for quite a time and no one knows, whether I will get it in the future
Akinohn
You’ll get it. Might not be in the first batch, they are deciding by lottery. Things happen ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Uris
How many people actually have this right now and if you do where did you get your copy
Orevise
The creator of the listing bought his at a local record store, so it appears they went to varying places
AnnyMars
By the way, someone else contacted me about how I got the release. They mentioned that the distributor was moving warehouses when this came out and VMP only received half of the order. They were trying to find out what went wrong. Not sure if they all went to Amazon though. A friend of mine, in the same city, ordered a copy right after I received mine hoping to get the VMP version, but he got the standard black.
Rageseeker
I received mine from Amazon. Ordered a standard black copy, got the VMP version.
PanshyR
It will ship from VMP in June with their regular shipments, however, I have seen two reports of people getting them already from non-VMP sources, the person who made this listing and apparently one on eBay (unless it is the same person), so I asked to see if these were random flukes sent to stores are if there is a large contingent that went out
Silverbrew
It’s been delayed, as you may know. I’m a confirmed pre-order, and added it my Collection because it’s become listed. I think the VMP email said it was now shipping late June due to a warehouse snafu. VMP has sent out an email: 250 folks, (selected at random from the pre-orders) will get their pre-order in June, and those who don’t will get their copy when it’s repressed, plus ‘something special’ for their patience. Unfortunate turn of events, but handled with class by VMP.
Goldfury
My copy sounds nice. The volume on this needs to be cranked a bit, which is maybe why other listeners are hearing more surface noise than usual. No skips for me either. Beautiful colour, so I'd grab one while you can if you're enjoying this album already!
Coiwield
My "Loser" copy sounds good. No skips, no overwhelming noise. Color vinyl can have audible noise, that's how it goes. Not noticing it in a negative way here. One of the best Sub Pop releases of the last few years.
Nothing personal
Maroon colored Loser edition skips several times on side A, even after being cleaned with a Spin Clean. I got a replacement black copy that skips in the same spots. Great album otherwise.
Funky
The last couple of tracks seem to have some audio clipping issues unfortunately.
Preve
with mine, the first track has oversteering noises already :( bought it on the tour.
Saimath
I went with the standard black version due to the complaints on the variants. I'm very happy with it, and the album sounds fantastic. It's quickly becoming my favorite album of 2019.
Malodor
Track 7 is called "Mirror Forever" and not "Mirror Fever". I would fix it myself if I knew how, so please someone with the know-how do so
Netlandinhabitant
Reiterating the other comments on the quality of the pressing. Titanic Rising (A5) has a very poor reproduction of high end frequencies, Movies (B1) has a horrible ripping noise scratch sound which repeats throughout the middle section. The rest of side B is riddled with crackles and pops. Overall very disappointing quality release given the greatness of the album. A real shame.
Rude
My copy of this is littered with crackles and pops throughout both sides. Particularly bad on the first song on each side.
Adaly
Same release as https://www.discogs.com/Weyes-Blood-Titanic-Rising/release/13440433Also not a Rough Trade exclusive, only RT exclusive was the gold pressing (https://www.discogs.com/Weyes-Blood-Titanic-Rising/release/13450850).
Magis
okay so my copy doesn't sound good, the A side is crackly but mostly fine, the B side though has a horrible kind of ripping paper sound through movies and maybe 2 minutes into mirror forever? 9/10 for the album but 3/10 for my pressing. The gold vinyl is nice to look at but i'll be listening to the download version.
PC-rider
Thanks for the reply, I've heard of non-fill but never really knew what it was! I probably should have but the new copy might've sounded the same and I don't like taking more copies when it's limited. Listened to the record a couple of times since and it's not THAT bad, the first side sounds good It's just a shame there isn't more quality control.
Doulkree
The ripping sound is non-fill. I would request a new copy from Riugh Trade.
Dream
Ordered mine off Rough Trade UK yesterday for under 24 quid (with the p&p). Can't wait to receive it
Mushicage
Filing this under "indie rock" is a travesty, even though Sub Pop started out in that niche. Just heard the album in a store without knowing who it was by or what label it was on, and thought it was by Sandy Denny or any of her contemporaries ...
Kale
just ordered this from the rough trade site for £20 don't buy it from the rip-off people! Great album i just hope it sounds better than my vinyl copy of front row seat to earth which is very noisy
Dangerous
My reply was for the standrad black EU version. Not Gold.
Auridora
At least it has the same overall "sound profile" as FRSTW - lacking a bit treble, not too much dynamic range... a bit harsh to the ears at times - the usual "blanket over the music" which is popular nowadays - not too "hi-fi". Still... pressed at Optimal and better vinyl and overall slightly better sounding than FRSTW. So much for the recording - the music is just stunning, like always, from Mering - and that's the most important. Enjoy!
Sorryyy
Just a friendly reminder that you have no soul if you're here contemplating the flipping value of this release. You can do better things with your time.
Hulis
https://www.roughtrade.com/us/music/weyes-blood-titanic-rising"All versions come with a bonus CD of 4 extra BRAND NEW tracks recorded especially for Rough Trade"What a poor choice of words. These are just live sessions of songs already on the album..
Felhalar
Yes, slightly confusing wording, but these bonus tracks are good versions, more minimal (perhaps even better?) arrangements than the originals, well recorded and definitely worth getting for fans. (I bought my CD version of the album from Rough Trade, just so I'd receive this bonus disc - I'm very glad I did.) The back cover says they are from a studio session recorded at Heavy Duty Studio A in Burbank, probably not live, as there are overdubs* of Natalie's sublime vocals on "Everyday" & "Wild Time". The tiny organ+whistling miniature "A Lot Has Changed" makes a fine intro to "A Lot's Gonna Change". Some days I may even prefer these shorter+mellower renditions to the more epic originals. For instance, surprisingly there are no drums anywhere on the bonus CD (apart from three solitary bass drum hits in "Everyday"), nor strings or even synths, just bass, guitars, organs, piano & sublime whistling (by Molly Lewis) accompanying the angel vox, which now have more space in the mix.* I've been A/B'ing the versions:- After the first verse, the shorter "Wild Time" loses the middle section and second chorus with a reverse reverb edit at 2'00" jumping to what would be 3'31" in the longer original; apart from that both versions seem to have identical vox+instrument tracks, just less of them, so I'd call it a remix. A good DJ can play them both in sync (until the missing section) for fun phasing effects :-)- "Everyday" seems to be a completely different recording though, as it soon slides out of sync against the original, and ends sooner without the crazy coda.- "Something To Believe" also slides out of sync with the original, and seems like different takes (although some are so close - I am open to being corrected!) After repeated listens, I prefer this less symphonic arrangement; with the organ to the fore it sounds like vintage Pink Floyd![Since the bonus CD comes with all versions bought from Rough Trade, should there be separate Versions of this release for CD+CD and Loser Edition LP+CD, as well as the Gold Vinyl LP+CD this page refers to?]
